I am pleased to introduce you to IBN’s New Events Coordinator, Katie McKiever (prounounced “McKeever”). Katie is a Charlotte transplant from Memphis, Tennessee, and is one of the warmest and most socially active people I know. No wonder she's perfect to help us in the events planning and production area!
Katie is a multi-talented, stand-out lady. I first met her several years ago at a Social Media Charlotte event. The two of us have remained in touch through the years and have worked together on a few short-term IBN projects. I was ecstatic when the stars lined up earlier this month so Katie could officially join our team.
Say Hello To Katie!
Katie is a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. She is an avid runner with a great writing background, including working for Business Wire, Charlotte Style Magazine and Yelp.com. Katie is also the co-president of Social Media Charlotte. Here's more about Katie.
–> Favorite scents: vanilla and lavender

–> Favorite books: Augusten Burroughs's Running with Scissors, and anything by David Sedaris
–> Favorite music: Hip Hop, R&B, dance hall, and anything by Phil Collins
–> What Indie Means To Katie: “Indie means living your passion. Indie means hearing that inner voice that says you want to be your own boss, working hard, learning, and making your dreams a reality. Indie means celebrating your skills and areas of expertise and enriching others. I'm just now beginning to explore my Indie spirit and am thrilled to share this journey and soak up tons of knowledge from the rest of the IBN community.”
So excited to have you, Katie! Let's go!
You can connect with Katie at Indie Social and on Twitter.
